Submission + - World Bank Invests in Modular Infrastructure to Boost Wireless in Africa, Asia (datacenterknowledge.com)

1sockchuck writes: A unit of the World Bank is backing a provider of factory-built data centers in hopes of accelerating wireless access in parts of Asia and Africa. The $24 million investment will support the deployment of pre-fabricated modular IT enclosures from Flexenclosure, as well as power systems for wireless towers that use a combination of solar and wind power and batteries. The Swedish company's system includes software that can manage multiple sources to optimize the power supply, or even extend it to support local water pumps and schools.
